Staff Cecil Lee Posted November 23, 2022 Staff Report Share Posted November 23, 2022 Sales Brochure: Ulu Pandan Banks (Nov 2022 Build-To-Order) Queenstown Bounded by Commonwealth Avenue West, Ghim Moh Link and the Ulu Pandan Park Connector, Ulu Pandan Banks is located near Dover MRT station. Its name references the Ulu Pandan Canal, which is located next to the site. In developing the plans, HDB has considered the findings from the Environmental Baseline Study and Ecological Profiling Exercise, feedback from Nature Groups and the community, as well as site context. The site will be developed sensitively, with green and blue elements weaved into the plans to support the local biodiversity, while enhancing residents’ well-being. The development comprises 7 residential blocks. 3 blocks have heights staggering from 33 to 44 storeys high, 2 blocks have varying heights from 10 to 12 storeys, while another 2 blocks range from 6 to 8 storeys in height. You can choose from 1,330 units of 3- and 4-room flats. Ulu Pandan Banks is offered under the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) model. Ulu Pandan Banks is located within the Health District @ Queenstown and will be designed with a variety of wellness choices for residents to experience a healthy and conducive living environment. For example, the development comes with a fitness trail at the skybridges linking 3 residential blocks at the 34th storey. It also features a range of recreational facilities closely located to one another to foster family and inter-generational bonding. These include playgrounds for children, fitness stations for adults and elderly, and a hardcourt. The sky terraces and roof gardens within all the residential blocks, and roof gardens atop the Multi-Storey Car Park make for ideal spots to exercise or rest while enjoying scenic views. Retained trees, pockets of bio-swales, and rain gardens on the grounds of the development provides a tranquil and green environment, while landscaped paths designed as restorative trails lead to the adjacent park and Ulu Pandan Park Connector where residents can be closer to nature. Additionally, there will be a terraced rain garden designed with resting decks and a combination of steps and ramps catering to users of various fitness levels. This provides a holistic environment to encourage active living across all ages. A childcare centre and residents’ network centre will also be located within Ulu Pandan Banks. Please refer to the site plan located at the top of this page, for the facilities provided in the development. Facilities in this development will be accessible by the public. HDB’s first car-lite precinct As announced by LTA and HDB on 5 Oct 2022, there will be designated HDB car-lite precincts within gazetted car-lite areas. They are planned with good public transport, walking, and cycling connections. Ulu Pandan Banks will be HDB’s first car-lite precinct. It is located next to Dover MRT within the gazetted Ulu Pandan car-lite area. Residents of Ulu Pandan Banks will enjoy good public transport connectivity, with convenient access to rail and bus services. There will be sheltered elevated linkways connecting them directly to Dover MRT station and barrier-free accessibility to bus stops along Commonwealth Avenue. To enable residents to walk safely, vehicular roads will be located at the perimeter of the precincts, segregated from the main pedestrian walkway. There will also be a comprehensive network of walking and cycling paths, providing residents with seamless connectivity to the neighbourhood centre and key amenities in Ghim Moh via the Park Connector Network. Designed for residents to adopt green modes of commuting, the parking provision will be reduced, freeing up space for public facilities and greenery. With more limited parking provision, available lots will be prioritised for residents in these precincts through additional parking demand management measures: Season parking will be reduced and restricted to residents only. Similar to all other HDB residential carparks, season parking sales will be on a first-come-first-served basis, subject to availability, and residents’ first car will be accorded higher priority than residents’ 2nd and subsequent car(s). As non-residents will not be able to buy season parking within car-lite precincts, they may do so at alternative nearby car parks. Residents who buy season parking for their 2nd and subsequent vehicles will be charged a higher Tier 2 season parking rate pegged to Tier 2 Restricted Zone rate, subject to availability. Learn more about the tiers for monthly season parking charges and the current rates. Short-term parking for visitors will remain available, albeit with limited lots. Parking charges may be adjusted based on demand. ulu-pandan-banks.pdf Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
